In Savage Quest, you are a Tyrannosaurus Rex whose eggs have just been stolen by a group of velociraptors dispatched by the evil shaman Karn. Before the raptors can make their getaway, you spot them and give chase. Karn escapes with the help of a pterodactyl. It is time to hunt him down and make him pay.
As a raging T-Rex, you have several characteristics in your favor: your speed, your jaws, and your frightening roar. You must use these elements to defeat your enemies, control your hunger, and stay uninjured.
Chase scenes comprise the meat of game play in Savage Quest. It is your job to chase raptors, brachiosaurs, and primitive humans to find Karn's lair. Holding the run button on the back of the joystick increases your speed. Periodically, the chase stops, and you must battle a strong boss creature like an armor-plated triceratops or packs of smaller but equally vicious raptors.
To defeat your enemies and control your hunger, you must lash out at them with your powerful jaws. Some creatures will flee from you, but some will turn and fight. Humans will try to gore you with spears. Eating enemies serves two purposes: it maintains your food level, and it prevents them from injuring you further. Whenever your T-Rex's food meter or energy meter is depleted, the game is over.
Apart from your powerful jaws, the only weapon you have is your roar. Roaring paralyzes onscreen enemies with fear. Your T-Rex can then quickly gobble these enemies. A roar meter appears onscreen, and the red roar button flashes when you have enough energy to deliver one.
Savage Quest is a 3D game for one player only. Players can continue for additional credits. ~ Anthony Baize, All Game Guide
